University Collaborates in Classroom and Beyond


Educate next generation of global leaders, facilitate collaboration across university boundaries, and streamline operations.


Deployed Cisco Collaboration tools including Cisco WebEx Social and TelePresence.


  • Extended interactive classroom experience to people around the world
  • Made it easier for students, faculty, and staff to collaborate anytime, anywhere
